New charity project offers hope, support for the Transgender community
A new calendar project to benefit transgender men is currently under way and they need your
help! Born from one person's desire to help her friend raise money for sexual reassignment
surgery, the 2011 Transguys Calendar Project is a labor of love designed to provide financial
assistance to transgendered individuals who need help funding sexual reassignmentRead more story below....
The calendar will feature twelve gorgeous female-to-male models at various stages of
transition. 100% of the proceeds from calendar sales will be donated to transgender individuals
in need of financial assistance for medical costs associated with transitioning.
According to Project Coordinator, Maegan Beard, the goal is to raise at least $10,000 in the first
year and to continue the effort annually to help as many people as possible. "Eventually we'd
like to be able to expand the project to include an annual Transgirls calendar as well to benefit
people transitioning from male to female," Beard says. "My ultimate goal is to turn this project
into a charitable foundation and provide a central resource for people looking for help with
funding trans medical costs everything from hormones to binders and other devices."
Volunteers are already lining up for the 2012 edition, and in a few short weeks the project has
garnered nationwide support from individuals, corporations, celebrities, and LGBT
organizations. Calendar pre-orders and donations are currently being accepted through the
group's website, www.theTcal.org . Advertising space on the calendar and website will
contribute to printing costs, and sponsorship and volunteer opportunities exist for interested
individuals and organizations worldwide.
